The annual golf tournament ran for 10 years before being renamed.

Players can look forward to a day of food, fun, and fellowship with all proceeds from the day's events funneling back into programs such as our food pantry that is open to all residents of Robeson.

Cash prize contests include closest to the pin, longest drive, and most accurate drive. First place will be awarded $300 and second place $250.
